      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Turn over the bucket day

Recommended Posts

Today would be a fantastic day to be sitting on the ol' bucket pulling in the pannies, however I am stuck at work.

Anyone make it out on this beautiful day of warm weather and falling pressure?

I was able to get out for about 1/2 hour.

Sled, hand auger, scoop, rod with jig and a dozen waxies...no flasher because I knew where they would be. Also had my AA bibs and Sorels stashed in my car and used my lunch hour to fish a nearby lake.

Caught half a dozen perch, couple were kind of fatties. Are they full of eggs already? They seemed out of proportion to the length.

I crammed a sandwich into my mouth on the way back to the office. It was great!

Went out on Clearwater Lake near Nokay/Deerwood.

Caught my limit of crappies in a couple hours.

Was a mid-morning bite. They quit biting after 11:30am.

I wish it would've been a little warmer in the morning.

Was kinda chilly fishing on the ice. Should have brought the portable...

Got out with the kids today (6 4 and 3 yrs old) and had a blast. Went home with a nice bunch of crappies. Didn't even have to set up the shack until the sun set.

Went to the Croix out of Bayport and caught 7 craps (4 Keepers) 3 rock bass 1 perch and a nasty mud puppy. It was kinda windy, but tolerable for sure.

It was Seniors day out on the lake I was at. Sun was warm but the wind was cold. Met several retired fellas out enjoying the day.

I reversed what I normally do and sat outside in my t-shirt in the sun and had my rattle reels down in the fish house with the window open to hear them. Talk about enjoyable!!
